For many customers, being able to leave feedback or obtain information about their favorite products is a very attractive quality of the product itself. If you’d like to find ways to learn more about the products you love, here are some clever tricks to get you more information.
Join an Email List
Considered the pinnacle of advertising and customer communication a decade ago, email lists are slowly becoming dated with the advent of text messaging and immediate notifications via smartphone applications. Taking this into consideration, email lists are still the preferred method of advertising and product alerts for those who aren’t technologically savvy. Businesses will send out email notifications to customers regarding sales and changes to your favorite products as well as notifications regarding new products coming soon. This can help you as a customer, because you will know the latest and greatest products and services being offered by your favorite companies.
Sign up for Text Alerts
Many of your favorite businesses and brands provide anonymous text message alerts when a new product or service becomes available. In addition to being used as an advertisement for new products and services, these text alerts can also provide you with notifications when your favorite products go on sale, are changed in some way, or have varied availability. Some companies, like Text Request, know just how valuable this kind of a service can be. If you want to stay in the know regarding any changes or sales for your favorite products, be sure to sign up for text message alerts with the company that produces them. Customers always want to be in the know about the companies they love and the products they buy.
Direct SMS Ads
This is considered a revolutionary method for customers and businesses to interact immediately and directly. The basic idea behind direct SMS advertising is that when you click on a Pay Per Click (PPC) advertisement on a website, you will receive the option to send a text message directly to the business that’s being advertised and can receive an immediate response. This method is also called click-to-text advertising which allows you, the customer, to ask questions, leave feedback, or to just provide your favorite company with a compliment or a suggestion. This is a great way for companies to receive feedback about their products and how customers are responding to certain products.
Follow Their Social Media Pages
As the social media platform frenzy continues to dominate how businesses advertise and interact with you, the customer, it’s becoming more apparent that frequently visiting your favorite business’ social media pages will prove to be quite beneficial when it comes to learning about your favorite product or capitalizing on sales events. Many businesses will advertise for sales and products on their social media pages because so many of their customers use social media as their primary source of news, entertainment, and information.
Many businesses will also create a smartphone application that allows you to shop for their products, view customer reviews, and even read about manufacturing origins, ingredients, and other product properties.
